Neutelings Riedijk Architects has established itself over the past twenty-four years as a leading practice specializing in the design and realization of complex projects for public, commercial, and cultural buildings. Some exemplar works are the MAS Museum in Antwerp, the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision in Hilversum, and the Culture House ‘Rozet’ in Arnhem. Currently the office is working on projects such as the Dutch Natural History Museum ‘Naturalis’ in Leiden, the ZIL Art Towers in Moscow, and the Gare Maritime in Brussels.
In 2018 Neutelings Riedijk Architects published their new book “Ornament and Identity”; a multi-layered essay in which they demonstrate that contemporary architectural ornamentation results in buildings with a powerful expression that create new local identities in a globalized world.
